First Kayak building course in the chapel....

Finally, after one week of intense work, 8 brand new kayaks were born in my new and very own workshop - the chapel! I was very excited to try the new facilities and meet a new group of very enthusiastic people!

They came from as far as Germany, Stavanger, Bergen, Trondheim, Faeroe Islands, Hungary, Narvik and Oslo!

The workshop worked well, except for some trouble with the sewer, that I had to try to solve while bending ribs. Except for that, it was a great, inspiring, and exhausting week, all together...

 Thank you Knut, Martin, Atle, Lars Olav, Florian, J├Âran, Tina and Andris...

Atle even decided to change his hair style during the week!

2013 - first Iqyax paddle

I'm very proud to announce:

Despite little sleep and a bit of wine yesterday evening, I still was able to launch my Iqyax on the local waters today. The sun was bright and warmed the air. The ice formed a perfect launching place on the otherwise very shallow water at the beach.

No long trip, just a good feeling of being out doing something after a long holiday, and starting the new year. Hopefully lots of (paddle?) activity to come in 2013.
